Great to have ‘Midge’ back

There is a familiar face riding out plenty at Kevin Ryan’s stables this year, Andrew ‘Midge’ Mullen.

Those with long memories will recall Andrew was originally an apprentice with Kevin many years ago. An excellent judge and rider, Kevin is delighted to have his former apprentice back in the fold and naturally we are looking forward to taking advantage of his experience this year.

Andrew made the perfect start to riding in our colours last week at Pontefract, giving Savannah Moon a beautifully judged ride, settling her during the early stages before delivering a well-timed challenge from rear to bring her through to win late on.

The ride advertised Andrew’s talents nicely while he’s also well known as an all-action rider who is strong in a finish.

Midge will be a big asset to the Hambleton team this year and we’re delighted to see a familiar face back in Kevin’s yard.
